“It was a tough loss. It was a hard-fought game. Unfortunate the way it ended.” - Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano

“They have a very high-powered offense. They did what they do. They didn't come out and do anything that they don't normally do. They just played the game and they made plays when we didn't. I don't think we tackled well. We gave up a big, long pass to (San Francisco tight end) Vernon Davis. We had them backed up in third-and-15 twice and we let them convert. They just took advantage of all the opportunities.” - Bucs DT Gerald McCoy

“It feels good. This is a great milestone. It's not easy to reach, but I was able to do it. My teammates played a huge part in it. I didn't do it on my own. But more importantly, I would've preferred to have gotten the win today.” - Bucs DT Gerald McCoy, on recording his eighth sack of the season

“Definitely a smart quarterback. He can see things, he can throw, he can run. They have a great run offense and they have a lot of weapons out there on offense. They definitely utilized it today.” - Bucs LB Dekoda Watson, on 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick

“We always want to be balanced. Each and every week we come with a game plan where we want to pound the ball, move the ball on the run, 3 yards, 4 yards, take our shots when we can and, obviously, get into a good rhythm in the passing game — short passes, protecting the quarterback. Today we just couldn't seem to find that balance, but I still believe we have all the tools and the people in this locker room can get that done.” - Bucs WR Vincent Jackson

“It's tough, it's very tough. You want to get three-and-outs all the time, consistently, but that didn't happen. We ended up being on the field longer on some long drives and that can tire a defense out, especially with the great offense they have. But, we've got to get off the field. We failed to do that in those long drives.” - Bucs CB Darrelle Revis

“It was a heck of a throw. We had really good protection on the play, but the way Vernon extended and ran that ball down, I mean it looked like Willie Mays running down a long fly ball to center field. He just tracked it down with his feet, and his eyes, and then extended to make the catch. That was a big-time play.” - 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, on tight end Vernon Davis' 52-yard touchdown catch

“I didn't know (the wall) was that close. I didn't know their wall was right there. As soon as I looked up, the wall was right there. It just knocked the wind out of me a little bit.” - 49ers TE Vernon Davis, who ran into the wall behind the end zone after his touchdown catch
